The Final Fantasy 14 Housing Lottery Is Finally Fixed

Final Fantasy XIV’s housing lottery is finally fixed after one month of being broken.  On April 16, an FFXIV maintenance update indicated that the latest lottery cycle for housing in-game was broken, so when checking the placard where winners were to be shown, the placard said there were no winners. This meant nobody could obtain a house. Polygon reports the issue has been fixed as of yesterday, and now, winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly.  “As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida writes in a new update. “This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers.” As a result of this maintenance fix:  Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted.  Yoshida says that if you have a winning lottery number, you should finalize your land purchase by Thursday, May 26, as the next lottery cycle will begin that day, at which point, you will lose the ability to claim land you won during the current lottery. The next one will start on May 26 and have a typical five-day entry period and a four-day results period.  If you’re a winning participant who has already received a gil refund due to the recent lottery break, you will still be able to finalize a purchase on a won plot of land. Even if you received a refund and have since found out you won the lottery, you’ll still be treated as a winning lottery player.  “In Patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded,” Yoshida writes. “As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.  “In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”  For more FFXIV, read our exclusive interview feature with Yoshi-P, and then read Game Informer’s Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker review.

    Amma Asante to Helm Series Adaptation of Smilla’s Sense of Snow

    Amma Asante to helm series adaptation of Smilla’s Sense of Snow After garnering rave reviews for her work on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Mrs. America, Amma Asante has found her next television project in the form of Constantin Film’s adaptation of the Danish thriller novel Smilla’s Sense of Snow, according to Variety. RELATED: John Boyega & Gavin Hood Team for The Test Adaptation Written by Peter Höeg and published in 1992 and 1993 in English, the novel followed the titular woman, a transplanted Greenlander in Copenhagen, as she investigate the mysterious death of an immigrant Inuit child in the projects and uncovers clues that lead towards a conspiracy regarding a secretive island in her home country and a grander supernatural revelation. “I’m absolutely delighted to be helming a show with such a powerful female lead at its center,” Assante said in a statement. “Peter Höeg’s 1993 novel gave us a potent social commentary, with a heroine ahead of her time, that illuminated themes more relevant today than ever. It was a compelling alchemy for me, and a wonderful jumping-off point for our update into a modern supernatural thriller that asks poignant questions for our times.” Click here to purchase Höeg’s acclaimed novel! The series is being scripted by Clive Bradley (Trapped) and will be executive produced by Constantin Film’s executive board members Oliver Berben and Robert Kulzer with Constantin CEO Martin Moszkowicz attached to produce and Colin Scully, Alex Westmore and Brandon Zimon all overseeing the project for the German production company. “We felt compelled to revisit this groundbreaking novel 30 years later because of the extraordinary prescience of its topics and themes,” Kulzer said in a statement. “Amma has a brilliant emotional and intellectual grasp of the story and we could not be more excited to go on this journey with her.” RELATED: The Westing Game: HBO Max Adapting Mystery Novel into Series The novel was previously adapted into film in 1997 with Julia Ormond (The Walking Dead: World Beyond) and Gabriel Byrne (Hereditary) leading the cast and Billie August (A Fortunate Man) directing the mixed-received translation of Höeg’s work. Constantin Film, who previously co-produced the film, are planning to bring the project to U.S. premium cable networks and streaming platforms. (Photo Credit: David M.
